Great question! Oftentimes, cleaning your sheepskin and lamb fur may seem daunting, but in reality, it's a straightforward process. Here are some essential steps to care for your sheepskin and lamb fur products:
- Shake It When your sheepskin or lamb fur items arrive, they might appear flattened or have loose fibers due to shipping. After unpacking, be sure to give them a good shake outdoors. Don't be concerned if they seem a bit flat initially. Exposure to air will help them regain their fluffiness and smooth out any wrinkles.
- Brush It Regularly brushing your sheepskin and lamb fur is key to maintaining their silky, clean, and fluffy appearance. Be sure to brush gently to avoid damaging the fibers.
- Clean It If you encounter a stain on your sheepskin or lamb fur, avoid cleaning the entire piece; instead, focus on the affected area. Washing the entire item should be your last resort, as it can permanently alter its shape, appearance, and texture.
To clean a spot on the fur, dampen a cloth with lukewarm water and a sheepskin cleaning detergent. Gently dab the stained area and then allow it to air dry. Rinse the spot with water to remove any detergent residues. When drying, avoid direct sunlight and allow the fur to air dry naturally. Avoid scrubbing wet fur, as it can cause fiber breakage and stretching.
For significant stains, refrain from
attempting to wash the fur by hand or in a washing machine, as this can lead to
shrinkage and irreversible changes in the wool's appearance. In such cases,
it's best to entrust your fur to a professional sheepskin cleaner.
